There is not an organic way to to stop them, you would need a chemical systemic. The best method is to keep the soil very healthy so the plant can defend itself naturally with thick cell walls and protect itself. If you do get an infestation in the future.

Please use 4 ounces per gallon of water. Please make sure you reseal the bottle so it does not leak and children do not have access to it.

I have several trays of little seedlings that are now about 2″ high and I believe it’s time to start feeding them before transplanting. Which of your liquid formulas should I use and how often should I apply it? I’m already using your house plant food – would that work?

I heard your new formula for ‘Life’ should be available by mid April. Where can I find it?

I just used the organic pump and grow fertilizer on my plants and after a couple days there’s mold growing at the base where I applied on all my plants?
I suspect you are growing indoors as this is usually when mold shows up due to organics and moisture combined, but no worries, its common to see this and it is harmless, allow the soil to dry out for a couple of day and it should disappear naturally, for future reference, moisture and shade, will always cause mold in any growing environment. Try to give them some direct sun if possible. If not, keep an eye on the dampness of the soil, less damp, means less mold, think of a home and the basement! Same metaphor!
I used your weed spray product on weeds within my pavers. Now there appears to be oily spots where I sprayed. How do I get rid of those spots?
If the bricks have never been water sealed any oil can and will leave a glossy stain for a while, but they always go away with time, from sun and water. If you do not want to wait, simply use some dish-washing detergent and a dish brush with water and it will clean it up.Remember these oils are simply essential oils that are cosmetic grade, really safe.

What is digested food materials? This ingredient is listed on your liquid fertilizers.
Digested food materials is a general way to saying produce that is recycled instead of put into our dumps. Many grocery stores have to throw out fruits, fish & vegetables that are not in perfect condition. That is where we come in, we recycle this produce and turn it into a compost tea, now known as our liquid fertilizers.
